A good relationship is the cornerstone of a successful, well lived life. It's at this point when you feel truly content in the company of your better half. It's an established fact that forging new, meaningful relationships aren't exactly a walk in the park. There may be billions of people in the world, but there's only one person who is truly compatible with you. Here are 15 signs you've found the right one.
It's great to share time with someone who actually loves doing the same things you do. Whether that includes video games, gardening, sharing the love of pets or going to the mall. You both have the same habits.
You don't mind giving your better half some personal space every now and then. You respect their decision to take some time to themselves. You don't doubt their intentions and understand that some things are better done without you.
Every relationship has its ups and downs. But you both learn to put aside past differences to move your relationship ahead on a positive note. A bad partner will always bring up pat mistakes in heated arguments to deal a low blow.
You are friends with your partner's friends and seem to get along well with them. This goes to show just how incredibly fine tuned the two of you really are. Their friends also love to spend time with you.
While the two of you may be incredibly compatible, it goes without saying that you two have some minor differences, but you don't allow them to take over you and dictate all your relationship. Because your differences are your identity.
Disagreement are bound to happen. As humans we all tend to have an opinion on just about everything. But good partners learn to shrug aside each other's differences on a positive note without making too much of a fuss over it.
Your partner's presence has transformed you into a better person. Before meeting them, you were a closed shell who displayed few emotions if any. But after meeting them, you've turned into an entirely different person, but for the better.
You're not just romantically involved with them, but you also share the same business ideals and goals. You help each other in work, assignments and school projects and are not afraid to share new ideas about completing a task.
The attraction with your partner is not just on a physical level, but it also transcends on a spiritual level. You two seem to be tied together by a powerful cord. The cord called love which won't break that easy.
There is a high level of trust between you two. You do not doubt them if they strike up a conversation with the opposite sex. Because communication is part of a normal life and you don't want to make a mountain out of a molehill.
Keeping someone's deepest, darkest secrets bottled up inside is an insurmountable task. It's not easy not to gossip around and spill the beans. But when true love is involved, you guard their privacy with like a mother guards her cubs.
The two of you compete objectives together as a team. Whether that includes vacationing together, completing daily household chores together or even cooking dinner together. Working as a team worked for you before and will work for you in the future.
Even the most trivial of tasks are turned into interesting, motivating activities. This is because you are in the company of your better half, someone who makes you feel better about yourself. Chores and errands are always fun when done in the presence of your loved one.
Sex is an important part of a relationship. Although on the surface, we shrug aside sexual relations as a very superficial, meaningless interaction, sex is anything but meaningless. And a good relationship has a healthy amount of it.
It is extremely natural to get upset and angry at your partner for something they did. But you cannot bring yourself to hate them forever because doing so means you never loved them in the first place.
They may be beautiful, rich and famous, but celebrities are human too, and that means they're just as prone to getting sick as the rest of us. And just like us, some celebs even live with chronic conditions that can take a toll on their day-to-day lives. But eczema – also referred to as dermatitis – is a common dry skin condition. Symptoms include dry, itchy, red and scaly skin. In more extreme cases, the skin can crust and bleed. According to the National Eczema Association, 1 in 10 individuals will develop eczema in their lifetime. And given these statistics, it’s hardly a surprise there are a few celebrities out there who have eczema too.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, 37, suffered from eczema in her teens. Kate was bullied heavily whilst attending Downe House girls’ boarding school, according to the Duchess’s friend Jessica Hay. According Hay, Middleton’s bullies made fun of her eczema. ‘It didn’t help that she was so tall and self-conscious about her eczema,’ Hay told CelebNow. Studies have shown children with moderate and extreme atopic dermatitis are more likely to suffer from conditions like anxiety and low self-esteem, which has a knock-on effect on their school work and ability to make friends.
Although Brad Pitt, 55, has not spoken about the issue himself, his co-star Cate Blanchett disclosed that Pitt was suffering from eczema during filming of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. In an interview with Scotland’s Daily Record, the actress said, ‘We went through three weeks of make-up tests and he was covered in eczema from it all.’ Blanchett sweetly loaned Pitt her skin cream to deal with the dermatitis, that had developed due to the use of prosthetic makeup worn during filming. Prosthetic make-up isn’t the hugest concern for us non-Hollywood folk, nevertheless, what is a concern, is how makeup can trigger eczema flair up. Unless makeup brushes are constantly washed (let’s be real, they’re not), they become a breeding ground for bacteria. This can lead to clogged pores and irritated sensitive skin.
Adele, 31, stated that her eczema flared up when she became a new mom. During a press conference in 2013 after her Golden Globe win for Best Original Song for the Bond film Sykfall, the singer said: ‘I am exhausted. That’s how [motherhood] changed me. I have eczema from boiling bottles.’ Research carried out by the BMJ (formerly known as the British Medical Journal) has revealed that contact dermatitis has the potential to have ‘detrimental’ impact and in the worst case scenarios can even threaten some sufferers ability to work.
